  • 1 box of white cake mix + ingredients listed on the box
  • food coloring
  • frosting


  • Preheat your oven to 350°. Make the cake batter according to package directions, then separate into 4 different bowls, about 1 1/4 cups batter in each.
  • Add 5-6 drops of food coloring to each bowl and mix well.
  • Spoon batter into mini cupcake tins and bake for 8-10 minutes or until they pass the toothpick test. Let them cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, separate frosting into 4 small bowls, and add 5-6 drops of food coloring to each and mix well.
  • Once the cupcakes are cool, cut off the tops with a serrated knife. Use the bottoms to make Cake Pops, or eat them! No judging here!
  • Pipe or spread a little color-coordinated frosting onto the underside of one of the tops and then sandwich another top of the same color on top of the frosting.
